When I visited Leucojum vernum in flower in the wild, it was growing 
in a very wet area, I believe on the flood plain of a stream. 
Melting snow added to the moisture. I had a hard time finding solid 
ground to stand on.It was the same sort of habitat that our local 
Erythronium revolutum grows in, so I imagine it never dries out.  I 
understood then why it had never survived longer than its first 
flowering at my house.  I plan to try again, planting the bulbs in a 
part of the garden where I water all summer.
